A friend of mine has realised he may have claimed benefits that he wasn't entitled to. He is trying to sort out things with the tax office and wants to sort out the benefits ASAP. He is really worried about being prosecuted and getting a criminal record which will affect his chance of future work. Is this less likely to happen if he goes to them and admits what's happened?

My wife and I are divorcing, the petition was acknowledged by the court 12 weeks ago, I am rigerously defending her allegations and the district judge has handed the file to the County court and we are waiting for a court date but that will only be for the Court to issue directions. I have been reading and found that a defended divorce can take 12-24 months before the divorce is complete.

My question is, I am wanting to start a new business which I would hope will be successful and achieve success quite quickly, in 1-2 years time will the court take account of my new business when dividing the assets or is there a cut off point, such as making an application for the divorce, that any wealth after that point is not included in the splitting of the estate? If not, then I will be taking all of the financial risks and responsibility and the huge amount of work needed just to line my wife's pocket even more.

I sincerely appreciate your comments because I cannot find the answer online using Google search

Kind regards

Steve Croxton

I am petitioning for a divorce and the nisi has been read 18.7.17. My husband has no money and we have nothing monetary to divide, however, he is set to inherit around £2m. He wants me to sign a consent order so that I have no tie on this. I want him to pay £350/month for our autistic six year old son. What can I have legally binding, without involving the CMS between us that will guarantee his maintenance payments of £350/pm until our son is at least 18 years old?

Many thanks
